Believe me, this is not a difficult job if I can handle it -- I am not a do-it-yourselfer, but have replaced the ends on both the tow vehicle and trailer -- it is not a terribly complex job. When working with the tow vehicle end, you will need a test light and probe. On the trailer side a pair of test wires with alligator clips as well as a small 12-volt battery for circuit investigation. The first time through, it took me about three hours -- now, I have it down to less than 90-minutes.
Good luck with your project!
P.S.: Looking at the photos, I think that I would consider replacing both ends with new matched equipment. It appears that both ends have a fair amount of visible corossion. The connectors aren't terribly expensive in either blade or pin type.
